Shame on the senators…

In a small corner of an English daily yesterday, I found some news that was disturbing to say the least. Here I am, shocked at the reaction of common people and lawyers who are hailing a killer as their newest hero, when the Government has proved itself to be no different. The article said that in the Senate session held a day ago, Senator Nilofar Bakhtiar tried to table a resolution condemning the assassination of Governor Salman Taseer. Instead of an easy passage, the resolution was outrightly opposed! Seems our senators are very openly condoning cold-blooded killing on the streets. Also, the same senator had asked that atleast fateha be offered then for the deceased soul. Our esteemed senators could not even do that, and many walked out of the session. What can I say, except shame on all the senators!
